Charlestown Soccer placement to start June 4

Placement evaluations for Charlestown Soccer’s Fall 2018 travel soccer season will take place over the course of the first two weeks in June.  Sessions will run for roughly one hour and 15 minutes, following the check in period. Placements are field evaluations of all our potential players conducted by independent contractors, and are used to create rosters that fit into appropriate divisions within the Middlesex Youth Soccer League. The schedule and details on what’s involved are below.

All placements will take place at the Charlestown High School fields on Medford Street.  There is limited parking immediately next to the Charlestown High School field, so please walk if at all possible.

All players will be required to register in order to participate in the placements. Registration for the Fall 2018 season is now open on the CYSA website at http://charlestownsoccer.com/Registration. Please register at least 24 hours prior to your placement session, because the placement system needs to be primed with the registration data.

If you are not ready or able to commit to playing in Fall 2018 at this time, but want to attend the evaluation session to inform a Spring 2019 team placement, please register at http://assn.la/Reg/?r=2:175989 which is a $0 registration that ensures we have the player information in our system.

The outcome of the placement session is not the only component used in evaluating players. The more information the team placement committee has, the better your chances of accurate placement. However, it is understood that unavoidable conflicts can arise, and if you find yourself in that position you MUST contact Charlestown Soccer at [email protected] to discuss the possibilities of a makeup.

If a player is unable to attend evaluations, they will be placed on a team based upon whatever information is available.
